Roger Tory Peterson’s final plate

Posted on Jul 28, 2014

Roger Tory Peterson passed away on this date, July 28, in 1996. He was working on this flycatcher plate for A Field Guide To Eastern Birds the day that he died, exemplifying the dedication he had to completing the fifth complete revision of the revolutionary book he wrote and illustrated 62 years earlier. Our thanks to Dr. Peterson for everything he accomplished for nature education and wildlife conservation as we strive to continue his mission and prolong his legacy each and every day here at RTPI.
